A high-rated car charger that won't break the bank is the DLO Autopod. It is roughly $20 to $30 per unit and features a cube with lights that indicate your charging status (red for powering on, amber for charging, and green for fully charged), as well as a replaceable fuse that protects your iPod against any power surges.
Velcro straps are included so that you can secure your iPod on the dashboard, too.
The intelligent lighting also alerts you if your iPod is still pulling charge from your car battery if the car is turned off.
